Ways to unblocking a siphon floor

The pipes are often made of materials that do not withstand the action of these liquids. The result is irreversible damage and a need to change the entire plumbing system of your home or business. So, we have some tips for pipes that are safe and natural to block, so that you can apply them yourself.
Before you do anything, wear a pair of rubber gloves. Then remove the grill from the floor siphon and clean with your hand that it is possible to remove, from hair and dirt. Then take a piece of wire, and using pliers, create a hook on its edge. At this point, it should be noted that in the floor siphon end up 3 pipes, the bathtub, the sink and the washing machine and from there they pass to the central sewer. So place the wire and with gentle movements clean that debris has stuck inside the first pipe (sink). Then follow the same procedure for the tub of the bathtub, the washing machine and the main drain.
After removing as much residue as possible, pour a cup of baking soda into the siphon. Let it spread on the pipes for 5 minutes and then pour a cup of vinegar. Cover the siphon hole with a damp towel and allow the chemical compound made by these 2 ingredients to clean the siphon for 15 minutes. Then pour a saucepan of hot water (about 80 degrees) into the hole to allow it to remain.
